**Definitions:**

**Pound Per Cubic Foot** (abbreviations: **lb/ft3, or ppf3**): is a unit of density, defined by mass in pound divided by volume in cubic foot

**Kilogram Per Cubic Meter** (abbreviations: **kg/m3, or kgpm3**): is an SI derived unit of density, defined by mass in kilograms divided by volume in cubic metres.

## How to Convert Pounds Per Cubic Feet to Kilograms Per Cubic Meters

*Example: How many kilograms per cubic meters are equivalent to 5.88 pounds per cubic feet?*

As;

1 pounds per cubic feet = 16.018646043013 kilograms per cubic meters

5.88 pounds per cubic feet = Y kilograms per cubic meters

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 5.88 times 16.018646043013 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 5.88 * 16.018646043013 / 1 = 94.189638732916 kilograms per cubic meters

Answer is: 94.189638732916 kilograms per cubic meters are equivalent to 5.88 pounds per cubic feet.
